N-Ethyltryptamine (NET), or merely ethyltryptamine, is a tryptamine that is structurally related to N-methyltryptamine (NMT) and the psychedelic drugs N,N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT) and N,N-diethyltryptamine (DET). [1]

<i>N</i>,<i>N</i>-Dimethyltryptamine Chemical compound

N,N-Dimethyltryptamine is a substituted tryptamine that occurs in many plants and animals and which is both a derivative and a structural analog of tryptamine. It is used as a recreational psychedelic drug and prepared by various cultures for ritual purposes as an entheogen.

5-MeO-DMT Chemical compound

5-MeO-DMT (5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine) or O-methyl-bufotenin is a psychedelic of the tryptamine class. It is found in a wide variety of plant species, and also is secreted by the glands of at least one toad species, the Sonoran Desert toad. Like its close relatives DMT and bufotenin (5-HO-DMT), it has been used as an entheogen in South America. Slang terms include Five-methoxy, The power, and Toad venom.

<i>Psychotria viridis</i> Perennial flowering plant in the coffee family Rubiaceae

Psychotria viridis, also known as chacruna, chacrona, or chaqruy in the Quechua languages, is a perennial, shrubby flowering plant in the coffee family Rubiaceae. It is a close relative of Psychotria carthagenensis of Ecuador. It is one half of ayahuasca, a decoction with a long history of its entheogenic use and its status as a "plant teacher" among the Indigenous peoples of the Amazon rainforest.


N-Methyltryptamine (NMT) is a member of the substituted tryptamine chemical class and a natural product which is biosynthesized in the human body from tryptamine by certain N-methyltransferase enzymes, such as indolethylamine N-methyltransferase. It is a common component in human urine. NMT is an alkaloid derived from L-tryptophan that has been found in the bark, shoots and leaves of several plant genera, including Virola, Acacia, Mimosa, and Desmanthus—often together with the related compounds N,N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT) and 5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine (5-MeO-DMT).


5-Methoxy-alpha-ethyltryptamine (5-MeO-α-ET) is a psychoactive drug and member of the tryptamine chemical class. It produces psychedelic, entactogenic, and stimulant effects.


α,N,N-Trimethyltryptamine is a psychoactive drug of the tryptamine chemical class which acts as a psychedelic hallucinogen. It is similar in structure to the other psychedelics of the tryptamine class such as dimethyltryptamine (DMT) and α-methyltryptamine (α-MT).

<i>Acacia confusa</i> Species of plant

Acacia confusa is a perennial tree native to South-East Asia. Some common names for it are acacia petit feuille, small Philippine acacia, Formosa acacia and Formosan koa. It grows to a height of 15 m. The tree has become very common in many tropical Pacific areas, including Hawaii, where the species is considered invasive.

<i>Acacia simplex</i> Species of plant

Acacia simplex is a perennial climbing tree native to islands in the western part of the Pacific Ocean as far east as Savaiʻi. It is also found in Argentina. This tree grows up to 12 m in height.

5-MeO-NMT Chemical compound

5-MeO-NMT (5-methoxy-N-methyltryptamine) is an organic chemical compound, being the 5-methoxy analog of N-methyltryptamine (NMT). It was first isolated from Phalaris arundinacea. It has also been synthesized by Alexander Shulgin and reported in his book TiHKAL. Like other members of the N-methyltryptamine family of compounds, 5-MeO-NMT is believed to produce few or no psychedelic effects, although very little data exists about its pharmacological properties or toxicity.

5,6-MDO-DMT Chemical compound

5,6-MDO-DMT, or 5,6-methylenedioxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine, is a lesser-known psychedelic drug. It is the 5,6-methylenedioxy analog of DMT. 5,6-MDO-DMT was first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin. In his book TiHKAL, 5,6-MDO-DMT produces no noticeable psychoactive effects, although it was only tested up to a dose of 5 mg. Very little data exists about the pharmacological properties, metabolism, and toxicity of 5,6-MDO-DMT.

<i>Desmanthus illinoensis</i> Species of legume

Desmanthus illinoensis is a common plant in many areas of the south central and Midwestern US.

4-Methyl-αMT (4-Me-αMT), also known as 4,α-dimethyltryptamine (4,α-DMT), and MP-809, is a drug belonging to the tryptamine class that was investigated as an antidepressant in the early 1960s but was never marketed.

Lespedamine Chemical compound

Lespedamine is an indole alkaloid and substituted tryptamine present in the plant Lespedeza bicolor. The alkaloid bears a close structural resemblance to the psychedelic alkaloid dimethyltryptamine and was speculated to have psychoactivity by Alexander Shulgin. No reports on lespedamine's biological activity have been published.


5-Chloro-α-methyltryptamine (5-Chloro-αMT), also known as PAL-542, is a tryptamine derivative related to α-methyltryptamine (αMT) and one of only a few known specific serotonin-dopamine releasing agents (SDRAs). It has been investigated in animals as a potential treatment for cocaine dependence. The EC50 values of 5-chloro-αMT in evoking the in vitro release of serotonin (5-HT), dopamine (DA), and norepinephrine (NE) in rat synaptosomes were reported as 16 nM, 54 nM, and 3434 nM, with an NE/DA ratio of 63.6 and a DA/5-HT ratio of 3.38, indicating that it is a highly specific and well-balanced SDRA. However, 5-chloro-αMT has also been found to act as a potent full agonist of the 5-HT2A receptor, with an EC50 value of 6.27 nM and an efficacy of 105%, and almost assuredly acts as a potent agonist of other serotonin receptors as well.


5-MeO-MET (5-Methoxy-N-methyl-N-ethyltryptamine) is a relatively rare designer drug from the substituted tryptamine family, related to compounds such as N-methyl-N-ethyltryptamine and 5-MeO-DMT. It was first synthesised in the 1960s and was studied to a limited extent, but was first identified on the illicit market in June 2012 in Sweden. It was made illegal in Norway in 2013, and is controlled under analogue provisions in numerous other jurisdictions.
